Reviews

'The blend of experience, anecdote and analysis that James Rodgers offers in this book will make it a firm recommendation for journalism courses for some time to come.' - Journal of Media Practice
 
'[The book is] an ideal starting place for students coming to journalism either at BA level or, with knowledge and experience from earlier study or work, at MA level. But it is also going to be valuable for academics and researchers in other fields (notably politics and international relations) whose subject areas are the focus of conflict reporting but who don't know how it works...the author has succeeded in the world of journalism and can now apply a wide-ranging knowledge drawn from experience and measure it alongside academic study.' - Keith Somerville, africajournalismtheworld.com

Authors

JAMES RODGERS spent twenty years as a journalist: five for Reuters Television, and fifteen for the BBC. He spent most of his career as a foreign correspondent, completing postings in Moscow, Gaza, and Brussels, as well as numerous other assignments. His areas of specialist knowledge are Russia, and the Gaza Strip, where, as the BBC's correspondent from 2002-2004, he was the only international journalist permanently based in the territory. In 2001, he reported from New York and Washington after September 11th. He was the first BBC journalist to report from the village where Saddam Hussein was captured in December 2003.
